The home of multiple choice questions for all your KS3, KS4 and KS5 Business Studies, Economics and Accounting requirements.

Valerie owns a dairy farm in Cornwall. In 2007 she decided to use some of the milk they produce to make their own brand of ice cream. After analysing the local competition they developed a brand called Truro’s best. It is very rich and creamy and is sold at a premium price. Most of their customers are in the catering industry – hotels and restaurants. Valerie has now an established product range and can also produce ice cream in any flavour to order.

Which ONE of the following suggests that there was an opportunity in the local market for Valerie’s ice cream to enter?

  4. The pound is getting stronger against the Euro
  5. Large ice-cream manufacturers can supply ice-cream to order
